There's nothing overtly offensive here, but I find it hard to recommend this wine for any reason. I'm having trouble even finding a distinguishing characteristic to write about. I think it's just a little too acidic, without enough flavor to balance it out. I love malbec, and this wine did almost nothing for me.

definite tannins, paired well with food, especially chocolate.

It's a ten dollar bottle of wine. But the Malbec phenom in Argentina continues to make the ten spot a good investment. No, this wine won't out-compete your best Bordeaux, but perhaps that was never its fate. Good for every day- nothing offensive, and no surprises. Solid example of the genre.

Smoked bacon nose with a hint of tobacco. Very fruity for a Malbec, with lots of plum and without the leathery smell and taste. Assertive tannins, but not too much to overwhelm food.

This red wine from Mendoza hits all the right notes. An aromatic cherry nose and big round tannins make this a great entry-level Malbec.

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are hand harvested at optimum ripeness from the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the San Rafael region of Mendoza. The near-desert conditions are remedied by water from the snow-capped Andes that also guard the area from radical temperature shifts that would otherwise hurt the harvest, and instead account for better fruit flavor and maturation in the clean, pollution-free mountain air. Mendoza rests on the San Andreas Fault and experiences near weekly small earthquakes. These mini-quakes shift layers of sand, clay, and loam with gravel and limestone, providing Mendoza’s vineyards with superb root nutrients and variety.

Tasting Notes:

Conquista Malbec is bright and fruity with plum, spice and red fruit aromas. It is full bodied with good acidity and layers of blackberries and blueberries, hints of mocha and spice on the lingering finish.
